Convenor's Column
I was not surprised by Australians' decision Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Monday, 15 October 2012

Lord Nicholas Windsor, whose great grandfather was King George V and whose first cousin is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, spoke with ACM Executive Director, Jai Martinkovits, whilst in Australia.

Noting that Australia is clearly as fully independent a country as Great Britain, Lord Nicholas says that he was not surprised by the outcome of the 1999 republic referendum.

 
The state of Australia's most monarchist State Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Friday, 31 August 2012

Malcolm Badgery, a well known supporter of the constitutional monarchy and of federalism is the Secretary of ACM's Queensland Division.

He answered a series of questions posed by Professor David Flint at the time of a major constitutional conference in Brisbane in August 2012.

In this video Professor Flint pointed out that in the 1999 republican referendum, despite a richly endowed republican campaign strongly supported by most politicians and the mainstream media, 92% of Queensland electorates voted No, with 63% of Queenslanders voting to keep the monarchy.  Although all states voted No, Queensland was most opposed to the best republican model the Australian Republican Movement could devise.

Professor Flint asked Mr. Badgery the reasons why Queensland registered such strong support for the monarchy.

In this video he was asked to comment on the fact that Queensland was the most decentralised of the states, and the consequences of this.

In this video he was asked why, unlike their attempts to shred the Australian Flag, republicans have not yet moved against the Queensland Flag.

In this video Professor Flint recalled that the Queensland Legislative Council was abolished in 19222 notwithstanding the people voting to keep it in a referendum, the constitution being changed to require both legislation and a favourable vote in a referendum for its restoration.

He asked about moves to restore it.

In this video he was asked about the level of support for our constitutional monarchy today and in the future.

Is Australia going through an identity crisis? - an American view Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Wednesday, 15 August 2012

Professor Robert P. George, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, visited Sydney recently as keynote speaker at the John Paul II Leaders Forum. Praised by US Supreme Court Justice and former Harvard Law School Dean Elena Kagan as "one of the nation's most respected legal theorists", he is the celebrated author of fourteen books and numerous articles.

Given that The Queen of Australia is also Queen of the other realms, I asked the Professor whether Americans see countries like Australia, New Zealand, and even Canada as having some sort of identity crisis?

This was his answer.

Falklands War: David Flint debates the issues in 1982 Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Tuesday, 03 April 2012

When the Argentinian dictators decided to invade the Falklands in 1982, an Australian  constitutional lawyer, Dr Paul Gerber, questioned  the British title to the islands on ABC television. David Flint, ACM's National Convenor since 1998, challenged that view. The ABC then arranged a televised debate between the two. 
 
David Flint argued that the British occupation from 1833 was fully in accordance with international law. He maintained  this argument in a debate with a Latin American historian from the University of New South Wales, Dr Miguel Bretos. Accordingly, the people of the Falkland Islands were entitled to remain under the Crown if this was there wish.

The original recording above was on tape and has since deteriorated. There is a loss of sound towards the end of the ABC debate, and at the beginning of the second debate on Channel 9, but the sound soon returns.



...renewed campaign...




In the meantime, the Argentinian President, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, used the 30th anniversary of her country’s invasion of the Falkland Islands - the subject of a rare condemnation by  the UN  Security Council -  to rubbish Britain’s claims to the South Atlantic territory.

The President declared : “It is absurd to pretend dominion more than 14,000km across the sea.'

” It is an injustice in the 21st century that there are still colonial enclaves,” Ms Fernández said in a speech in Ushuaia, the capital of the province of Tierra del Fuego to which Argentina says the islands it calls the Malvinas rightfully belong. But on reviewing the 1982 debates, Professor Flint indicates that he is of exactly the same view which is that Great Britain has a good title under international law to the Falkland Islands, and one superior to any Argentinean claim. 

The Argentinian government has ramped up a campaign against Britain by asking other South American governments to act against Britain and the Falkland Islands authorities. Some have taken sanctions, such as refusing access to their ports.
